The Campodonico Family’s Hungarian Chicken Paprikash

The Campodonico Family’s Hungarian Chicken Paprikash has been passed down through generations. Read more recipes from the Wildwood Family Cookbook here. Bon Appetit!

This one was literally passed down from my grandma, who was always a “pinch of this and a pour of that”. Such a great goulash-y, winter comfort food!

  6. Cover all and simmer for approximately 30 minutes.
